Watch: RNC Releases Brutal Ad Blasting Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris

The Republican National Committee (RNC) released a brutal ad slamming socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) over their stances on letting convicted terrorists vote while they are in prison.

The video features news coverage of the tragic Boston Marathon Bombing and shows a picture of the Islamic terrorist who committed the attack, saying: “Democrats believe this terrorist should be allowed to vote from prison.”

“On April 15, 2013, the excitement of Marathon Monday was shattered as two bombs exploded near the finish line, killing three people and injuring more than 280,” MassLive.com reported. “When the bombs exploded, three people were killed: 8-year-old Martin Richard, restaurant manager Krystle Campbell and Boston University graduate student Lu Lingzi. Many more were seriously injured, some with limbs amputated.” . . .

“Would [you] support enfranchising people like the Boston Marathon bomber, a convicted terrorist and murderer?” Sanders was asked by an audience member. “Do you think those convicted of sexual assault should have the opportunity to vote for politicians who could have a direct impact on women’s rights?” . . .

“But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy,” he continued. “Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away … you’re running down a slippery slope … I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.” (Read more from “Watch: RNC Releases Brutal Ad Blasting Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris” HERE)

OOPS: Biden’s Latest Hire Doesn’t Want White People Leading the Democratic Party

Former CNN contributor Symone Sanders does not want white people leading the Democrat Party. Or, at least she used to feel that way.

Sanders was just tapped to serve as a senior advisor to former Vice President Joe Biden, who announced his long-expected 2020 presidential run on Thursday. Of course, if Biden has any success, he, a white male, would be the nominee of the Democratic Party.

But after President Donald Trump took office in 2016, Sanders said during a CNN segment that “we don’t need white people leading the Democratic Party right now,” noted The Washington Examiner. . .

Biden announced his candidacy on Thursday with a racially-charged video, castigating President Donald Trump as a defender of white supremacists.

As noted by The Daily Wire’s James Barrett, Biden’s announcement video “features a reference to Trump saying there were ‘very fine people on both sides’ following the Charlottesville Confederate monument protests that erupted in violence and resulted in a white supremacist plowing into and killing a peaceful liberal protester. Trump critics say the president was specifically defending white nationalists, while his defenders say he was generally referencing those protesting the removal of Confederate monuments. Amid backlash for his initial response, Trump went on to specifically denounce white supremacy.” (Read more from “OOPS: Biden’s Latest Hire Doesn’t Want White People Leading the Democratic Party” HERE)

Feds Slap Sanctuary Judge, Court Officer With Obstruction of Justice Charges

Federal prosecutors have charged a Massachusetts judge who reportedly turned his own courtroom into a sanctuary jurisdiction with obstruction of justice.

As first reported by the Boston Herald on Thursday, the U.S. attorney for the District of Massachusetts announced federal obstruction of justice charges against Judge Shelley M. Richmond Joseph and court officer Wesley MacGregor, who are accused of helping an illegal immigrant evade immigration authorities in 2018.

According to court documents, local law enforcement arrested and charged an already twice-deported illegal alien on narcotics laws last spring. When ICE learned about the arrest, it issued a detainer for the immigrant, who was also previously barred from re-entering the U.S. until 2027.

When a plainclothes officer showed up to execute that warrant on the morning of April 2, 2018, prosecutors say, that’s when Judge Joseph and Officer MacGregor got in the way.

“I’m not gonna allow [ICE] to come in here [the courtroom],” Judge Joseph told a court clerk on the date in question, according to the indictment.

MacGregor is accused of escorting the alien defendant out of the courtroom and using his security access card to open the exit so he could slip away later that afternoon.

“This case is about the rule of law,” said United States attorney Andrew E. Lelling in a Department of Justice press release. “We cannot pick and choose the federal laws we follow, or use our personal views to justify violating the law.”

The indictment also states that the courtroom recorder was turned off, against Massachusetts court rules, for 52 seconds while the judge discussed the matter with the illegal alien’s lawyer.

Federal authorities are charging Joseph and MacGregor with three obstruction-related counts and have also charged MacGregor with one count of perjury for allegedly lying to a grand jury in relation to the matter.

“The people of this country deserve nothing less than to know that their appointed and elected representatives are working on their behalf, while adhering to and enforcing the rule of law, not a personal agenda,” reads a statement from Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent in Charge Peter C. Fitzhugh. “Any conduct which severs the underlying trust that the citizens of this Commonwealth place in those who hold positions of power and authority is a stain on all who swear an oath to protect and serve, with honor and integrity.” (For more from the author of “Feds Slap Sanctuary Judge, Court Officer With Obstruction of Justice Charges” please click HERE)

5-Time Deported Illegal Alien Beats Baby to Death

In another grim reminder than not all those pouring through our border from Central America are peaceful immigrants, a Honduran national was arrested by Memphis police on April 12 for allegedly beating a four-month-old baby to death.

Jose Avila-Agurcia, a 33-year-old illegal alien from Honduras, was charged with first-degree murder in Shleby County, Tennessee, this week for allegedly striking a four-month-old baby multiple times, inflicting fatal fractures to the baby’s skull and ribs. The child’s mother, Mercy Lizondro-Chacon, alleges that the suspect beat the baby to death when he found out that the baby was not his child after he previously assumed he had fathered the boy.

An ICE spokesman told CR that biometrics confirm that the suspect’s real name is Carlos Zuniga-Aviles, an illegal alien who was previously deported five times prior to this incident. The name Jose Avila-Agurcia is an alias he provided to local officials.

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has lodged an immigration detainer on unlawfully present Honduran national Carlos Zuniga-Aviles AKA Jose Avila-Agurcia following his arrest for murder in Shelby County, Tennessee,” said ICE spokesman Bryan Cox. “ICE will seek to take him into custody to reinstate his removal order following the resolution of the criminal charges he currently faces.”

According to ICE, the suspect was removed from the country first in Feb. 2010, and then four subsequent times – Jan. 2011, March 2012, Nov. 2015, and Dec. 2016. Two of those times he was caught by Border Patrol and removed; three other times he was deported by ICE.

In addition, Shelby County officials are refusing to comply with a state law requiring local law enforcement to cooperate with ICE detainer requests. When it comes to an issue that is national in scope and affects the sovereignty and security of the whole of the people, some liberal politicians suddenly discover an affinity for localism to such a degree that they will even defy the feds and the state.

Florida is the latest state to consider legislation barring localities from denying ICE detainers and impeding federal immigration authorities. The Florida House passed the bill 69-47 on Wednesday, and the Senate is expected to debate the bill today.

The core function of government is protecting the citizenry from criminals, and the core function of the federal government, in particular, is to protect us from other countries’ people who would do us harm. That clearly starts with enforcement both at the border and in the interior.

ICE is now warning localities that don’t cooperate with detainers in order to shield illegal aliens from deportation that their actions will likely result in more deportations in their area. “Any local jurisdiction thinking that refusing to cooperate with ICE will result in a decrease in local immigration enforcement is mistaken,” said ICE in a statement. “Local jurisdictions that choose to not cooperate with ICE are likely to see an increase in ICE enforcement activity, as in jurisdictions that do not cooperate with ICE the agency has no choice but to conduct more at-large arrest operations. A consequence of ICE being forced to make more arrests on the streets is the agency is likely to encounter other unlawfully present foreign nationals that wouldn’t have been encountered had we been allowed to take custody of a criminal target within the confines of a local jail.” (For more from the author of “5-Time Deported Illegal Alien Beats Baby to Death” please click HERE)

Terrifying Boy Scout Abuse Scandal Revealed, Hundreds of Victims Come Forward With Allegations

By Mike Ciandella. While the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) faces increasing pressure to release the names of leaders accused of sexual abuse, hundreds of alleged victims have come forward to tell their own stories.

The BSA reportedly has kept the names of 7,819 leaders accused of sexual abuse since 1944 a secret. These leaders were accused by 12,254 alleged victims. The “scope” of how many names are found in these so-called “perversion files” hasn’t been known until now, Jeff Anderson, a lawyer for the victims, told NBC News.

Anderson said he learned about the number of people included in these files from a professor at the University of Virginia named Dr. Janet Warren. Warren had reportedly worked with the Boy Scouts while they evaluated their handling of abuse allegations.

The BSA itself has acknowledged that these files exist, but has refused to make them public. Anderson argued that this endangered young children: “They may have removed them from scouting, but the Boy Scouts of America have never alerted communities that this scout leader, this coach, this teacher is known to be a child molester.”

The Boy Scouts, however, insist that the names of these accused abusers have been turned over to law enforcement. The organization said in a statement, “At no time have we ever knowingly allowed a sexual predator to work with youth, and we mandate that all leaders, volunteers and staff members nationwide immediately report any abuse allegation to law enforcement.”

Just in the past few weeks, more than 200 people have come forward to say that they were victims of abuse at the hands of 150 Scout leaders.

On Tuesday, the law firms of Greg Gianforcaro and Jeff Anderson & Associates released a list the names of 50 scout leaders who were accused of abusing minors in the state of New Jersey.

In 2010, the Boy Scouts were forced to pay $18.5 million in damages and release 20,000 documents. The organization is reportedly considering filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (BSA denies this), which could make it difficult for alleged victims to win compensation.

Nearly 8,000 Boy Scout Leaders Allegedly Sexually Abused Minors

By The Week. More than 12,000 Boy Scouts have allegedly been sexually abused by more than 7,000 troop leaders and volunteers in the organization, reports ABC News.

Newly released court documents provide testimony substantiating the claims, writes ABC News. Expert witness Janet Warren, who is a professor at the University of Virginia’s medical school, revealed during a January trial she has been evaluating the Boy Scouts of America’s handling of sexual abuse cases from 1944 to 2016. During this trial, which centered around sexual abuse allegations at a Minnesota children’s theater, Warren said that there were 7,819 perpetrators and 12,254 victims within the organization, reports ABC News.

Attorney Jeff Anderson publicized these numbers on Tuesday and said 130 of the alleged abusers live in New York and could face legal repercussions. (Read more from “Nearly 8,000 Boy Scout Leaders Allegedly Sexually Abused Minors” HERE)

Did He Lie? Officer at the Scene of Beto’s DWI Confirms He Tried to Flee the Wreck

By Daily Wire. As The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra reported last August, then-Congressman Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), who was in the midst of a very expensive and tightly contested U.S. Senate race with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) at the time, was publicly revealed to have fled the scene of a dramatic DWI-induced car wreck scene that he had caused 20 years prior:

Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke’s 1998 arrest for drunk driving has been public knowledge for years, but a newly-revealed police report has brought to light even more allegations of disturbing details from the arrest.

The Houston Chronicle reported on Friday that newly-obtained police reports alleged “two elements of the incident that have been overlooked: that there was a crash involved, and that O’Rourke allegedly attempted to flee.”

But while O’Rourke admitted to the DWI, he persistently denied that he tried to flee the scene of the crash. Last September, PolitiFact rated O’Rourke’s denial “Mostly False”:

Records indicate O’Rourke was arrested at the scene and wasn’t charged with trying to flee. But the September 1998 Anthony Police Department report on the incident says a witness said O’Rourke tried to leave the scene before police arrived and the witness kept him from doing so.

Officers at Scene of Beto O’Rourke’s 1998 DWI Crash Say They Believe He Tried to Flee

By The Texas Tribune. The former police officer who arrested Beto O’Rourke for driving drunk in 1998, along with the sergeant who signed the incident report, both say they believe now what they reported at the time: that O’Rourke tried to leave the scene of the wreck he caused.

O’Rourke admits he was intoxicated and says there is no justification for his actions, but he has denied that he tried to flee.

“Beto’s DWI is something he has long publicly and openly addressed over the last 20 years at town halls, on the debate stage, during interviews and in Op-Eds, calling it a serious mistake for which there is no excuse,” said O’Rourke spokesman Chris Evans. “This has been widely and repeatedly reported on.”

Neither the investigating officer, Richard Carrera, nor his former supervisor, Gary Hargrove, specifically recalls the events of that night more than 20 years ago. But both of the former Anthony Police Department officers told The Texas Tribune they have no doubt the report they compiled and signed is accurate. . .

Carrera, 49, said after reading the police report, in which an unnamed witness claimed O’Rourke tried to flee in his Volvo, he has “no doubt that he tried to leave the scene.” (Read more from “Officers at Scene of Beto O’Rourke’s 1998 DWI Crash Say They Believe He Tried to Flee” HERE)

Trump Admin Gets Pro-Abortion Language Removed From UN Anti-Rape Resolution

By Life Site News. The Trump administration secured the removal of pro-abortion language from a United Nations resolution against rape in war zones Tuesday by threatening to veto the measure if the final version contained a notorious euphemism for abortion.

The UN Security Council had been debating updates a resolution first approved in 2013 to combat the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war. The United States objected to a reference in the document calling for “comprehensive health services, including sexual and reproductive health” for “survivors of sexual violence,” on the grounds that “reproductive health” is a longstanding term of art for abortion and related services.

America remains “strongly committed to preventing conflict-related sexual violence and holding responsible persons accountable” and agrees “more needs to be done to deter the recurrence of such crimes and assist survivors,” the cable said, but “cannot accept unamended explicit, or implicit, references to ‘sexual and reproductive health’” because “we do not support or promote abortion.”

“If we let the Americans do this and take out this language, it will be watered down for a long time,” an unnamed European diplomat complained to The Guardian. “It is, at its heart, an attack on the progressive normative framework established over the past 25 years.” (Read more from “Trump Admin Gets Pro-Abortion Language Removed From UN Anti-Rape Resolution” HERE)

Bowing to U.S. Demands, U.N. Waters Down Resolution

By US News. A U.S. threat to veto U.N. Security Council action on sexual violence in conflict was averted on Tuesday after a long-agreed phrase was removed because President Donald Trump’s administration sees it as code for abortion, diplomats said.

A German-drafted resolution was adopted after a reference was cut referring to the need for U.N. bodies and donors to give timely “sexual and reproductive health” assistance to survivors of sexual violence in conflict. (Read more from “Bowing to U.S. Demands, U.N. Waters Down Resolution” HERE)

U.S. Bill Introduced to Ban Drag Shows From Involving, Sexualizing Children

Lawmakers in Ohio are taking a stand against the sexualization of children by introducing new legislation that would ban drag shows and other sexually-suggestive or explicit performances from using minors.

Introduced by Republican state Rep. Tim Schaffer, House Bill 180 amends Ohio’s child endangerment statute to include involving minors in any material or performance that “suggests a minor is participating or engaging in sexual activity, masturbation, or bestiality.” Adults violating the law could face fines starting at $1,000 and six months in prison.

“Given our heightened focus on human trafficking and the role money plays in trafficking children, I knew I had to take action to make sure this activity does not occur again. We can do better to protect innocent children and we must do better,” Schaffer declared in a statement.

Cleveland.com reported that HB180 is motivated in part by a drag event last December at JD Hendersons, a Lancaster-area bar where 9-year-old drag performer Jacob Measley, a.k.a. “Miss Mae Hem” danced in a suggestive costume while accepting dollar bills from an audience (ostensibly for a charitable event).

On January 30, Lancaster Republican Mayor David Scheffler issued a statement downplaying the incident by stressing that the “minor was fully clothed and was not touched by anyone in the audience,” that his parents were in attendance, that police found “no violations of city ordinances or state laws” and received “no new complaints of this activity” at the bar, and that the bar owners supposedly “did not approve” the activity and promptly banned the drag troupe upon learning about it.

This Nearly Blacked out Poop Map of San Francisco Says All You Need to Know

The streets of San Francisco have become so infested with human feces that if you were to place onto a map all the recorded cases since 2011, the city would appear to be covered with it from top-to-bottom.

“A new map pinpointing the locations where human feces are reported to have been found in the California city since 2011 shows San Francisco has a staggering problem with the stinky stuff,” Fox News reported. “Nearly every city block has had a poop sighting in recent years as the city grapples with homelessness, according to data compiled by Open The Books.”

As the map below shows, parts of the city have been deluged with so many reports of human fecal matter in the streets since 2011 that they have been blacked out entirely, as if they were the city’s no man’s land; the largest area of complaints being on the streets where both Twitter and Uber are headquartered:

. . .

Beyond making the city a toxic sinkhole of poor hygiene, the epidemic of human beings defecating in the streets has had a tremendous economic impact on the city of St. Francis. NBC News reported last year that the city has become so filth-infested that the city spends approximately $30 million a year to clean human feces off the sidewalk. Not only that, the city has only made the problem worse by enabling people’s drug problems through its distribution of free syringes, which are often seen discarded in public places.

The U.S. Navy Is Making It Easier for Its Pilots to Report UFOs

By The Blaze. The U.S. Navy is coming up with new guidelines that will make it easier for pilots and Navy personnel to report sightings of unidentified flying objects. . .

While these new guidelines that encourage reporting of unidentified objects may excite believers in extraterrestrials, they have nothing to do with alien spacecraft sightings. Rather, the Navy is concerned about aircraft it doesn’t know about entering U.S. military airspace.

In a statement to Politico, a spokesperson for the Navy explained, “There have been a number of reports of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated air space in recent years.”

This is especially problematic now that drones have become popular. In December, a drone entered the airspace of London’s Gatwick airport, causing panic and delays.

Being able to analyze these sightings could help to better detect the presence of hostile aircraft and other “hazards to aviation safety.” These UFO sightings happen often enough, Politico reported, that Navy leadership believes they can no longer be ignored. The Navy told Politico in a statement that it “takes these reports very seriously and investigates each and every report.” (Read more from “The U.S. Navy Is Making It Easier for Its Pilots to Report UFOs” HERE)

Frustrated Pilots Got Navy to Stop Dismissing UFOs

By Daily News Philly. A recent uptick in sightings of unidentified flying objects — or, as the military calls them, “unexplained aerial phenomena” — prompted the U.S. Navy to draft formal procedures for pilots to document encounters, a corrective measure that former officials say is long overdue.

“Since 2014, these intrusions have been happening on a regular basis,” Joseph Gradisher, spokesman for the deputy chief of naval operations for information warfare, told the Washington Post on Wednesday. Recently, unidentified aircraft entered military-designated airspace as often as multiple times per month. “We want to get to the bottom of this. We need to determine who’s doing it, where it’s coming from, and what their intent is. We need to try to find ways to prevent it from happening again.” . . .

Luis Elizondo, a former senior intelligence officer, told the Post that the new Navy guidelines formalized the reporting process, facilitating data-driven analysis while removing the stigma from talking about UFOs, calling it “the single greatest decision the Navy has made in decades.” (Read more from “Frustrated Pilots Got Navy to Stop Dismissing UFOs” HERE)
